It's unlikely that positions will make it to the Internet that fast but you may be attempting to transmit them that frequently none-the-less. In reality you're lucky to get one to show on APRS-IS every few minutes.

Usually roughly every 2 minutes considered a high rate for transmitting but sometimes you'll see parameters set down to be as low as 45 seconds when a ham thinks sending tons of beacons is necessary. The reality is using Smart Beaconing is better when you get it set to transmit when something interesting happens.

And yeah, man, Google is your friend!
